A fundraiser within a fundraiser nets nearly $3,400 for the Ronald McDonald House of Dayton.

Students at all of the schools sold $10 peeler cards to raise money for extra activities. All combined, the students raised about $15,000 for their schools. On top of that, one dollar from each card sold is donated to the Ronald McDonald House charities.
Last year, 11 families from Allen County stayed at the Ronald McDonald House of Dayton.
